Strange, but I remember a similiar thread just a couple of months ago.
I'm going to say the same thing now that I said then...My favorite in South Lake Tahoe is Brothers. A biker bar by night, great breakfast w/totally laid back atmosphere during the day...AWESOME Bloody Mary's.
Thanks for the suggestions. I was at the South shore last weekend and did visit the Red Hut . It was wonderful and exactly what I was looking for when I posed my question. Will be up in a couple of weeks, so I'll have to check Heidi's out then.
